How to change your Device's ID?

Hi Guys,

Today we are gonna discuss about how to change the Device’s ID, Android ID, SIM serial number and subscriber ID of any Android device.

Why should I change? Are there any benefits?

It has many advantages. Foremost benefit you can make your friends jealous by showing Android 5.5 in About Phone settings whereas in reality, it will be a lot lower.
Now practical benefits include, using coupon codes, many a times you can’t use a certain coupon code on your device just because you or someone else used a similar type of coupon code on your phone. This problem is caused because many apps such as PayTM, SnapDeal etc save your device’s ID and don’t let you earn from those hard-earned coupon of yours.

How to do so?


First of all you will need a Rooted android device. To check if it’s rooted or not, install Root Checker. If it isn’t rooted, check our How to root post. If you have a rooted Android device, you will need the following apps to change your device’s ID and other such things.

All these apps add upto no more than 13.1 MB.
After downloading the above required apps. Follow these steps –
1. Launch the Xposed Framework, go to the “Framework” section and click on “Install/Update” > Reboot.

  1. Install IMEI Changer app and change the IMEI of your device.
    Note – But remember your original IMEI number for when any problem occurs.
  2. In Xposed Framework App, go to modules section > enable Donkey Guard App and RootCloak App in it.

  3. If you want a certain app, say Snapdeal to not know your root status. Open RootClock app  > click on “Add/Remove Apps” > click on the plus sign on top right (to add any app) > Add Snapdeal from it. Similarly, you can add any app to this list.

  4. After doing the above, open the HideMyRoot App and click on “Hide SU Binaries”.
